afternoon. i think you will hear president obama unveil his vision for comprehensive immigration reform and i don't think it will be widely different from what he's talked about. in the past, remember, this is something he's been talking about since 2008 when he first ran for president. now it looks like he may have more support after they lost the latino vote so largely during the 2012 race so in terms of what it may look like, some of what he's talked about before includes strengthening security holding businesses accountable and higher undocumented workers including the system that does a better job of reflecting the values of the united states and in essence, encouraging folks to stay here who have gone to school her, who have gone to college here and raised here and of course, that big one, and the path to citizenship. this is one of the most controversial issues. of course, a lot of republicans don't like this idea of creating a path to citizenship. president obama has worked to get that done. the big question is how can can the white house and members of congress work together to

? is this a win for president obama? does this become next to probably health care reform one of his lasting legacies? >> yes however i think it is a net neutral for both parties at the end of the day. the white house will claim it as they should because they are driving the conversation. republicans are also going to claim credit as they should because they are going to say we got this through the house and senate. >> i guess we could aargue that if republicans and democrats aren't talking about impgration reform in a year that is a win for the gop, as well. >> i love talking about politics as much as the next guy. on this issue this is a win for the country. you cannot have 13 million people in the shadows and think that is good for the future of the country. too many young people worried about the future. that is not the way a country needs to be run. in terms of the political consequences or the benefits, both sides i think can make the argument that they benefit. at the end of the day the country will benefit from this. >> good to see both of you. thanks so much. >> thank you. >>> the d

that he is mapping out in the past. of course, this is an issue that president obama has been talking about since 2008, he said that it's one of his great regret that's has not gotten comprehensive immigration reform done. you will see him pushing to get it done in the second is term. in terms of what he has talked about in the past, he has talked about the need to improve security at the border and he talked about the need to hold businesses accountable. those that hire undocumented workers as well as making america sort of more inviting to those who study here, making it a better place for them to get their degrees, and stay here once undocumented people do get their degrees, and then of course the more controversial point of a path to citizenship. he has argued for this. a lot of republicans disagree, they do not think there should be a path to citizenship. this has been a sticking point in the past t conventional wisdom is that there's an appetite to get something done not just to part of the president but on the part of republicans, in large parted, craig, if you look at the 2012

was saying immigration reform would mean self-deportation, just 2 1/2 months ago. so who's to be believed? >> i think the birth dapresiden try, and unfortunately obama care came in the way. the republican electorate woke up the day of the election and say, we do have a latino problem. and it's not a surprise that lindsey graham is part of the negotiations. his state is changing. he received a new congressional seat back in 2010 because of the growth in latino vote. if you start looking at where there's a huge population boom, in the next phase of the population boom for the next election, it's all in the south. so it's in their best interests for the republican party to ensure that they're seen out in front. because otherwise, they're going to have a very tough battle moving on, to win not just the senate, but also the white house. >> so you talk about the south. let's talk about kentucky. we get this from mitch mcconnell and his statement on this. take a listen, "when the president addresses this issue today, i hope he will take a bipartisan approach, rather than delivering another bipar

control, a number of big stories topping the agenda in washington. one day before president obama expected to roll out his own strategy for immigration reform in vegas, someone beat him to it. a group of someones who have hammered out their own compromise and will formally announce their plan this afternoon. the plan is calling for path to citizenship, legal immigration reform, employee verification system and new protection for workers already in the u.s. >> we can't go on forever with 11 million people living in this country in the shadows in an illegal status. >> we have virtually been going for maybe 25 years without a clear statement about immigration policy. that's unacceptable in this nation of immigrants. >> i see the right spirit. i see things that were once off the table for agreement and discussion being on the table with a serious pathway forward. >> in this hour at the white house president obama and vice president joe biden will hold another meeting as they push for gun control. this time their meeting is with police from across the country, including the police chiefs of aur

vision for comprehensive immigration reform. the president is expected to embrace the blueprint unveiled by the bipartisan immigration ink. just yesterday, this was a move designed to get the jump on the president's big speech. however, today, president obama will also reportedly call for a more progressive approach for dealing with the nation's 11 million illegal immigrants. >> there will be some differences between ourselves and the president, but i think we could iron out any of those. >> i think while he will show this is his idea with where we should be, he will work with us to produce a good, strong, bipartisan bill. we cannot pass this bill if either democrats are opposed or republicans are opposed. >> so where does this discussion really fork between 1600 pennsylvania avenue and capitol hill? sticking point number one, the president favors a quicker path to citizenship, and not one tied to enforcement at america's borders. >> before we can move towards a path for green cards, because citizenship comes after that. it's a path to green cards. before we move to a path towards green
